By now, we're all aware of Ram Gopal Varma's grandiose plans to remake Ramesh Sippy's Sholay, the king among Indian blockbusters.

Here's a quick look at the new actors to step into the shoes of the legendary characters.

Veeru: From Dharmendra to Abhishek Bachchan

This is a queer decision, since most people would have expected Little B to step into Amitabh Bachchan's shoes and essay the 'Jai' role, but Ramu believes in going against the grain.

Verdict: Abhishek does have the requisite comic timing, but it seems unlikely that he match Dharam paaji in terms of mass appeal, warmth or likeability. The actor might just do a good job, but will audiences accept him in anything other than his father's role?
